After 60 days of protest in prisons across California against solitary confinement and other torturous conditions, the California Prisoner Hunger Strike has ended. How did it end and why? What are the next steps? Dolores Canales whose son participated in the hunger strike and is a spokeswoman for the hunger strike support network fills us in.
And, on our weekly roundtable our panelists weigh in on the latest developments on the possibility of a US military strike on Syria. The President faced growing opposition at the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg Russia; Putin called Kerry a liar; the Pope steps up his call for no military solution; no votes are building up in Congress against a military strike and women, children and men on the ground in Syria are forming human shields around military sites in Damascus.
Panelists are: Jackie Goldberg; Tom Hayden and Dr. Joseph Peniel, author and professor of history and Africana Studies.
